The GIP to Australia was held during the recess week of February 2017, and covered visits to the cities of Sydney and Melbourne.

The group of 18 MBAs had an enriching experience as well as a taste of Australian hospitality through visits to our host companies such as the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation, Fairfax Media, IBM, Brosa, ConvaTec, Charter Keck Cramer, Healthscope and Fonterra. Also included in the itinerary was a visit to our partner, the Melbourne Business School (MBS), who generously hosted and facilitated a networking event amongst the MBAs of both Business Schools.

The group also had an incredible time exploring Sydney and Melbourne to experience the culture, diversity and lifestyle of the life down under.

In May 2015, the MBA students set off to Hong Kong for a week long study trip which includes company visits to Google, Giorgio Armani, PIMCO, HK Monetary Authority, Fung Group, CDIB Capital International, and Citibank. They met with the senior management from these companies and it was a rewarding experience learning how business cultures and practices differ between Singapore and Hong Kong despite both countries sharing many similarities.

The chance to visit Germany provided many students an excellent opportunity to forge closer bonds. It was also a chance for the group to understand the uniqueness of the Germany economy, and how it relates to the rest of the European Union. The students visited Siemens, Roland Berger and Santander, as well as met with alumni based in Germany. It was an enriching experience for the MBAs as they seek to understand the contrast of the strong culture of perfectionism and discipline in Germany.

It was an intensive study trip to Spain in April 2016, packed with both company visits as well as leisure activities. The students were exposed to the art, history, architecture and the Spanish culture, which also provided much insights to how it all influenced the way business is conducted. Company visits to Santander, Repsol, Caixa Bank, HP, as well as the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium were eye openers to the MBAs.




In many ways the NUS MBA was a journey of self-discovery and one after which I have come out stronger and ready to restart my career in earnest.
